D E M O N W A L K

By Christopher Sedgwick



It’s time to take my demons for a walk

I’ve upset my man

Silliness took my hand

No longer time or opportunity to talk

My past has won

My experiences sprung

If only all my abusive ex’s had hung

My great Aunt did

Her control had slid

So a crime of passion made sure she got rid

Ruth Ellis’ the name

Revenge is the game

So maybe if I follow there’ll be no one left alive to blame

But they aren’t worth the sum

I am the mightier one

But so mighty my inner demons built with a mightier tongue

They come with a venom

Devoid of heaven

To subdue them could cost me all of seven

Dark years to moan

Bones to stone

Best I just leave these demons alone.
